Nike is the best marketed product of all time IMO.  I think their shoes are crap, and their active wear is only slightly better, but it would be difficult to get my teenage kids to wear anything else.

I remember wearing NIKE (as in rhymes with bike) when I was a teenager in the 1970's.  When did it become NI-KEY?

I remember having that same discussion with my friends -- we also disagreed about Porsh vs. PorshUh.

I guess it's not realistic to assume they recognized that if you're going to name something after the Greek goddess of victory, then you should pronounce the final vowel?
